Welcome to the SCIWC Library

Since our inception in 1986, the St. Croix International Waterway Commission has collected and preserved a collection of documents, books, reports, and maps that pertain to the St. Croix Watershed and surrounding area. We now have the wonderful opportunity to share these valuable sources of information with the public through the free integrated library system (ILS) platform Librarika (details here).  This was made possible with the funding support of our partner the International Joint Commission - International St. Croix River Watershed Board. 

In 2020, we undertook the process of sorting, cataloguing and scanning each of these maps, so that they could be make publicly available.  In our library catalogue, you will find 723 maps that relate to land use and forestry inventories, and date from early 1900s to the mid-1980s.
